Vertebrae Protection System

Barefoot Treeless Saddles introduced VPS, Vertebrae Protection System, in the Fall of 2008. VPS consists of laminated foams of different densities.

 
COMPONENTS OF THE VPS
  1. Leather or DryTex top layer
  2. PU Foam layer
  3. Shock absorbing elastomer layer 1
  4. Distributing polymer layer
  5. Pressure absorbing elastomer layer 2
  6. Equalizing fleece lining
 

With VPS, you can have both a soft, comfortable seat, and enough firmness under the stirrup attachment points to prevent pressure points. Tougher materials absorb pressure even better for a consistently clear, distinguished gullet and increased weight distribution and shock absorption. The stiffer foams deep in the saddle do a great job of distributing weight, so the Barefoot is currently the only treeless saddle worldwide that has no weight limitation! The new VPS saddles will take a little longer to settle but will mold to your shape in a few weeks.
